For the first Nitehawk Nasty of 2015, we celebrate one of the nastiest movies of the last decade: Rob Zombie’s twisted, sun bleached sequel THE DEVIL’S REJECTS.
When it comes to killin’, no one does it better than the Firefly family. It’s 1978, and after getting pegged for seventy-five homicides by the local P.D., the remaining members of the fiendishly charming Firefly clan (Captain Spaulding, Otis, and Baby) hit the road, hoping to outpace a psychotic sheriff (William Forsythe) who rationalizes his extreme methods with a righteous fury. Getting away should be easy enough. With the open road in front of them, the Firefly’s just need to keep a low profile until they hit the border — problem is, when you have a knack for knifings like these three, it can be hard to control yourself. After all, they’re doing the Devil’s work; and on this final ride, the Devil’s Rejects hope to secure their damnation by leaving a trail of mangled bodies in their wake.
Part of Nitehawk’s Nitehawk Nasties signature series.
